    Yep! The knuckle is trying to escape from beneath the truck... easiest way out is sideways out the bottom!

    Okay i lowered my preload on my C/Os and and went down to 1inch from about 2.75. after i installed my UCAs and spindles. I want to keep it there.

    The question is should I replace my BJs before doing anything else(pretty Sure the answers is yes would just like more insight)

    Yes, without doubt. A failed ball joint at speed can be potentially life-ending

    Forgot about that. Enough said. Which brand. Iirc Moog is a good brand. Correct? Or what other are worth the money

    Get as high quality as the wallet allows... made in China has the shortest life span. I suggest checking Rock Auto, if only to see a list of brands/prices so you know what you're getting

    Get 'em ASAP... I just got a new set of tires thanks to a bad LBJ. Didn't know it was bad and didn't notice the front tires were wearing unevenly until I got home from a 700 mile road trip and was missing half the tread on each tire

    Get them from the dealer (OEM). Always the best quality. Expensive, but your life could depend on it.
